YALE has at last a book of undergraduate poetry, compiled from the columns of its biweeklies and monthly. It is, of course, a hopeful sign that such a book should be published; but we cannot very heartily congratulate our sister college upon its appearance. The average excellence is distinctly below the Harvard standard; the book will not for a moment compare with the "Verses from the Harvard Advocate," published a few years since, and many humorous or sentimental poems that have appeared in our papers since. And we say this in all candor, not in prejudice or undue self-praise. However, there are several very good pieces in the book that go far to redeem the rest.
